WE PARTNER WITH CLIENTS TO DELIVER TAILORED SOLUTIONS & IMPACTFUL OUTCOMES.
We are an international technical consulting company based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. We specialize in natural resources, including metals, minerals and energy.
Today’s society is deeply entrenched in the availability of natural resources. Minerals, water, energy, metals and others are essential components to our daily life. These materials are crucial for advancing new technology, achieving green energy and sustaining national security.
Big Rock is focused on identifying, exploring and evaluating mineral and other natural resources.
Our vast network of geoscientists, project managers and field technicians provide clients with reliable expertise for all kinds of natural resource projects.

We partnered with major industrial minerals companies to supply a tailored package of geologic support services in order to help their clients identify future resource acquisition targets, and inventory known and potential near surface resource opportunities. With long-term supply contracts in place, it was imperative they hone in on high quality product within close proximity to their existing operation. Additionally, a large capital investment in a recently acquired land package created a strong economic urgency to maximize the available resource value and near-term development.
We partnered with a prolific gold junior mining client that needed to upgrade a known gold resource in Nevada to NI 43-101 compliant reserves to advance their project to the next level. This client needed highly qualified staff that could manage drill rigs, log the core and supply regular exploration guidance. Big Rock mobilized their multidiscipinary field team to meet the the client’s accelerated timeline and provide the most high-value services, enabling continued development at their key site.
We partnered with a major gemstone mining company to reopen and capitalize on a previously overlooked opportunity. High in the Colorado Rockies, a historic silver mine sat idle. Under the guidance of Big Rock, a client planned to repurpose the mine to excavate gemstones. They needed turn-key services from acquisition to production to bring the mine up to modern safety compliance and develop a mine plan.
In 2015, an engineering design company, who works for these firms, needed assistance completing geotechnical field investigations on two sites in Oklahoma and Texas. Due to the engineering firm being engaged in a high volume of similar wind energy projects at that time, they would not have been able to provide internal staff to undertake these specific programs.
